Sticky Thread Sticky: A Guide to Ketosis

I first heard about keto from this board 3 or 4 years ago, so this is where it all started for me. I've had fantastic results on keto, and I really believe in the validity of this diet - not only in terms of fat-loss, but also in terms of health-gain. There is a lot of understandable skepticism and...

What's the point?

I figured my macros and would need about 130 grams of fat to meet my caloric needs. But why have 130 grams of fat when you can have 50 grams of fat and 180 grams of carbs for the same amount of calories?

Feel like giving up

I just always feel hungry on this keto diet. I'm finding it really hard to stick to. I'm eating lots of fats and protein, but then come the nightime I just mess it up with eating bowls of cereal. I seem to actually do okay during the day, but then through the night binge. I bulk a lot...

Does extent of ketosis matter?

Hello everyone I have been on keto diet since the last 10 days. The usual keto level with my Precison xtra is around 3.5mmol/l. Today i did my first Intermittent fast - around 18hrs into the fast, I found my ketone level at 5.9mmol/L. Does higher ketone levels mean higher fat breakdown?

Hi all. Over the last 2 years I have experimented with Keto and Low carb diets and each year I get a blood workup from my doctor.

Ketosis and a 3 day water fast

I'm just asking for advice. I've been in ketosis since February but I have a prior engagement coming up that will require a 3 day water fast. Should I carb load to help with water retention or is there a benefit to ketosis and water fasting. I'd assume it's a bad idea (I get that it's a bad idea in...

Good experinces in my first year into nutritional ketosis

Question Little question about macros on keto diet

Let's make this quick. I want to lose some fat and get some definition going on. But i also do not want to sacrifice muscle in the process. I've read that in order to maintain your muscle, you need about 1g protein/lb or 2kg-2.2kg/kg of corporal weight, both cases put me around 180g of protein. But...

Water fast or ketogenic diet for fast weight loss?

If I just water fast without exercising will I lose weight faster than the keto diet? The reason why I dont want to exercise is because it makes fasting more harder and might raise cortisol
